Plans to open a new wildlife sanctuary in Inishowen took another step closer this week as the 22-acre site was given the go-ahead. It is hoped that the site, which is based in Dundrean in Burnfoot, could be opened within the next two months.The person behind the sanctuary, Buncrana solicitor Killian McLaughlin, is building with the aim of creating a worthy habitat for a range of different Irish animals including the rare red squirrel, foxes, hedgehogs, red deer and birds. The sanctuary, which could attract up to 24,000 visitors per year, will incorporate a reception building, vehicular entrance with car park, rehabilitation units, open viewing areas and a below the water viewing area.The site will also host a visitor centre and a score of enclosures for wildlife homed in the facility.It is understood that visitor numbers will be kept to a minimum once the sanctuary opens, with a view of using the facility to educate school children to the rich diversity of wildlife across Donegal.Cllr Nicholas Crossan, Cathaoirleach of the Donegal County Council, said he believed the development will be a great attraction for Inishowen. He told Donegal Daily: “The site is very near completion, with the launch possibly in the next six weeks, that is the hope because Killian (McLaughlin) is not ready to go yet, but he will be very shortly.“I think it will be a fabulous attraction and unique wildlife sanctuary for the area and for educational purposes, I think it will be a great idea for the Donegal area.“And especially now, when climate change is a big topic of discussion, it will be interesting to learn and watch how these beautiful animals, that people don’t realise are in their own backyards, live and survive in the wild,” Crossan added.“It will be fantastic to teach children more about nature and the spot itself is a cracking spot that has been kept as natural as possible.”New wildlife sanctuary to open in Inishowen to protect rare species was last modified: August 7th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
The best solution won’t be cheapThe problem can be solved, writes GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, “but the solution won’t necessarily be cheap.”If there is enough room in the attic, especially at the eaves, for an adequate amount of insulation, and if a skilled crew of workers can be found, then Rabe’s proposed solution will be successful.“In many homes, however, this approach won’t work because space at the eaves is limited and because skilled workers are hard to find,” Holladay adds. “Instead, consider installing a new layer or layers of thick rigid foam above the roof sheathing. This approach (a) is expensive, (b) requires you to insulate the gable walls in your attic, and (c) requires you to re-work your exterior trim details at the rakes and eaves — but it will solve your ice dam problems.”Holladay suggests that Rabe consider using nailbase, a type of roof sheathing that consists of rigid foam insulation glued to a layer of OSB. Nailbase is available in several thicknesses, including a 9-inch-thick panel from ABT that’s rated at R-33.If he installs rigid foam on the exterior of the roof sheathing, he should not ventilate the underside of the sheathing. This approach requires the sealing of any soffit or ridge vents.“Some builders prefer to include a ventilation channel above the rigid foam,” he adds. “In fact, some nailbase panels include this type of ventilation channel. But you wouldn’t want to have any ventilation under the original sheathing… You only want to ventilate your roof sheathing when the roof sheathing is on the exterior side of the insulation. Once you bring the roof sheathing into your home’s thermal envelope, you want to keep everything warm and cozy (to limit your energy bills).” The spray foam optionRabe has contacted an insulation contractor who recommends that both problem roof areas be insulated with spray foam, creating an unvented “hot” roof.“The plan, he said, was to remove the sheathing and spay foam the ‘attic floor’ between each joist in order to seal and insulate the attic floor with no more spray foam than the height of each joist,” Rabe writes. “All intake and exhaust vents would be closed off. As for the cathedral, they would also remove the sheathing and spray foam the entire cavity from eave to ridge. No venting. I have no interest in making my attic space into a livable region. I’m all for the cheapest approach to eliminate ice damming.”He’s concerned, however, that enough heat will bleed through the insulation beneath the low-slope roof to get the sheathing warm enough to melt snow.“Apologies for the learning process, but is there some advantage to not having ventilation in this scenario?” he adds. “The insulation guy said that spray foam below the sheathing vs. directly on the attic floor are identical.”Not really, Holladay replies. “Installing spray foam insulation on an attic floor does not create a conditioned attic. This type of attic is outside of the home’s thermal envelope, and it should be vented. There is no reason for the spray foam contractor to seal the soffit vents and the ridge vent if the contractor is installing spray foam on the attic floor. In most cases, the best insulation to install on an attic floor is cellulose, not spray foam, although spray foam is often useful for air sealing.”A second insulation contractor recommends spraying the attic floor beneath the low-slope roof with foam, blocking the soffit vents but providing ventilation to the attic with Maximum Ventilation intakes. For the cathedral ceiling, the contractor would spray the roof cavity from above, leaving a small air space beneath the new roof sheathing for ventilation. Soffit vents would remain open.Rabe already uses VMax Model 301 units from the company as exhaust vents for the attic. “I am considering installing ridge vents,” he says, “but the insulation specialist claims that these Maximum Ventilation units (exhaust and intake) are far superior solutions, and even the intakes would serve to draw in air allowing them to fully spray foam the corners tight, maximizing the R-value there.”Keep minimum recommended R-values in mind, Holladay adds that 5 inches of open-cell foam yields an R-18 thermal barrier, while that much closed-cell foam produces R-32. But in either case, that’s less than the minimum code requirement of R-49 required in the U.S. for even milder climate zones than Ontario. RELATED ARTICLES Rabe has solicited suggestions on how to resolve the problem from several roofing companies. They seem to run the gamut: opening all soffit vents and adding fluffy insulation between rafters; removing shingles and installing metal roofing; adding a new roof deck on top of the existing deck and building in an air gap between the two; removing all existing attic insulation before air-sealing the attic floor and blowing in new insulation; and, finally, removing the existing low-slope and cathedral roofs and replacing them with a new roof of a steeper pitch.Rabe is leaning toward a plan that would begin with removing the existing board sheathing and the existing attic insulation. Then, he would air-seal all the “visibly obvious problem areas,” open all soffits and add baffles between rafters, and then blow in new cellulose to a depth of 18 inches to 20 inches. The roof could then be decked with OSB and re-shingled. He estimates this approach would cost about $25,000 Canadian ($20,000 U.S.).“I’m hoping for a guaranteed solution,” he writes.Is this it? That’s the question for this Q&A Spotlight. With the onset of another winter just a few months away, Jake Rabe is looking for suggestions on how to prevent the recurrence of ice dams on his older Ontario home.“Each winter I have to deal with ice damming along two sides of the roof — nowhere else,” he writes in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor. “The areas in question are a low-slope roof (3/12 pitch, east and west side of the ridge) and a cathedral style roof (8/12 pitch)… My goal is to stop the ice damming.”Rabe believes that the house was built between the 1920s and the 1950s. Access to the cramped attic beneath the east and west low-slope roofs is through a tiny hatch on the upper floor of the house. Rabe estimates that there is only about 36 inches from the ridge to the attic floor, with the space now filled with a mix of old and new cellulose insulation roughly 12 inches thick. He has no idea whether the insulation is evenly distributed across the attic floor.Soffit vents have been installed, although he suspects they have been obstructed by wood or cellulose. There are two exhaust vents at the top of the roof. The roof has board sheathing rather than OSB or plywood. How to Install Rigid Foam On Top of Roof SheathingIce Dam BasicsPrevent Ice Dams With Air Sealing and InsulationAir Leakage Through Spray Polyurethane FoamSpray Foam Jobs With Lingering Odor ProblemsSpray Foam in Cold ClimatesSpray Foam Insulation Is Not a Magic BulletSpray Foam Insulation Is Not a Cure -AllGetting Spray Foam RightAir Leaks in Homes Insulated With Spray FoamWhen Spray Foam Goes Bad When to vent the atticThere is still some lingering confusion on whether it’s important to vent an attic when the attic floor has been insulated and air-sealed with spray foam.If the attic is too small to stand up in, and the attic floor is insulated with an adequate amount of spray foam, the attic would not have to be vented, Holladay says. “As long as the spray foam work is not performed in the rain, the assembly will be fine. The spray foam stops humid air from the interior from exfiltrating through the ceiling, so interior moisture won’t be entering from below. The roofing keeps out the rain.”Vents above the insulation would be a good idea if there is a practical way to install them, Holladay says, but vents that penetrate the roofing are not his personal favorites because they can leak.Why does the need for ventilation hinge on how big the attic is? asks Alan.“Low-slope roof assemblies insulated with spray polyurethane foam are often unvented,” Holladay replies. “The fact that there are a few inches of air above the cured spray foam doesn’t necessarily make these roof assemblies risky. That said, venting the air space provides an opportunity for excess moisture to dissipate, obviously, so if Jake can include a soffit vent or a wall vent, he should do so.” Consult an expertFinding a qualified contractor is, of course, key. Rabe has been calling roofing contractors, but they don’t seem to think that air-sealing is very important. So where should he look?What you want, Holladay says, is a home performance or weatherization contractor. A RESNET-certified or BPI-certified rater would be a good place to look for a recommendation, and Steve Knapp suggests that the Canadian Residential Energy Services website is a place to start. The Building Performance Institute Canada also would be a place to check.“Keep in mind that spray foam contractors want to sell spray foam,” Knapp says. “Earlier, Martin suggested bringing in a CRESNET rater to check out your home and recommend a strategy. Personally, I think that is the way to go. Otherwise, you may end up wasting funds and possibly making your situation worse, not better.”The advice Rabe has been getting from spray-foam contractors isn’t sitting well with Alan B.“That insulation specialist is making me do multiple face-palms,” he writes. “He sounds like one of those stereotypical ‘foam solves everything, R-value myth’ types. For a standard attic the advice is simple: air seal (blower door directed is best) then put R-50 of cellulose on the attic floor. Make sure soffit and ridge venting is adequate. Measure the amount [of venting] you have in square inches and the size of the roof, and post here to get numbers.“For a cathedral ceiling (meaning no conventional attic, low slope or high slope), adequate rigid foam on top of the sheathing is recommended, and fill the rafters with open-cell foam, drywall, air-seal and paint,” Alan adds. “The needed foam thickness on top of the sheathing depends on rafter thickness and climate zone, so your location in Ontario would be helpful… This should solve the problems at better cost then some of the crazy and wrong solutions you have been given.” Aesthetic concerns with exterior foamOne potential drawback of using rigid foam above the roof sheathing is what the new insulation would do to the appearance of the house.“My worry about this approach is how it will look,” Rabe writes. “I would only be applying it to the low-pitch roof and the cathedral roof — nowhere else. I’m concerned the existing, relatively new, gutters will have a, worst case, 10-inch-gap between the shingles and the top of the gutter.”[Illustration: Building Science Corporation]If exterior foam is the option Rabe chooses, Holladay replies, it would typically be applied to the entire roof, not parts of it. He refers Rabe to an an illustration from Building Science Corporation showing how a rebuilt soffit and fascia can disguise the thick exterior foam.“If you are uncertain of the aesthetics of this insulation project, it’s time to hire an architect to help you,” Holladay says.The potentially “astronomical” cost of placing rigid foam on top of the sheathing has Rabe circling back to a variation of an idea he broached earlier. Working from above, he would remove the existing sheathing and insulation, and air-seal the attic floor. The floor could then be insulated, either with closed-cell foam alone, or with a layer of closed-cell foam and then a layer of cellulose.“Your plan sounds sensible,” Holladay tells him. “The success of your plan will depend, of course, on the skill of your spray foam installer.” Our expert’s opinionHere’s what GBA technical director Peter Yost had to say:It’s interesting that this home only has problems on certain roofs or roof locations. A blower-door-assisted infrared scan of the roofs would be really helpful in better understanding the thermal bypasses (due to combined air leakage and conductive heat loss) at all the eaves.All ice dams are the combined result of conductive and convective heat loss at the eaves, at nearby penetrations, or at leaky ducts. In this case it looks like missing air sealing and insulation at the eave (or the top of the exterior wall) is the primary culprit.It’s not really possible to vent or ventilate your way out of ice dams; the only real solution is making the air and thermal barrier continuous at the intersection of the eave and the top of the wall. You can rake the eaves when it snows, or switch to a less-susceptible roofing, but those aren’t really solutions. For this project (especially with the low-slope shed dormer), attacking the eaves from the outside, along the lines of this project by Paul Eldrenkamp of Byggmeister, is the way to go.An insulation retrofit beefed up insulation at the eaves.Paul has done moisture monitoring on ice-dam retrofits like this one — where the total space or depth of the roof assembly really does not allow venting — to show that even if the roof sheathing gets quite wet during the heating season, it will dry well over the rest of the year.Venting introduces drying potential forgiveness, of course, but you simply can’t move enough air past an assembly wetted by an ice dam to good effect. It is more important to eliminate uncontrolled air movement (leakage) than it is to increase managed air movement (venting or ventilating) to manage ice dams.Incidentally, Eldrenkamp sent me this photo as part of his work with the Building America team (NorthernSTAR) and their work on ice dams, called Project Overcoat. Go here for more examples of what leading contractors have done to solve ice dams.
Two people were injured after a low-intensity parcel bomb exploded at a courier service’s office in Ahmednagar on Tuesday night.According to the police, the package, which was going from Ahmednagar to Pune, was apparently addressed to Sanjay Nahar, founder of Sarhad, an NGO that works with displaced Kashmiri students.According to the police, the crude bomb hidden in a parcel exploded at the office of Maruti Courier Service in the city’s Maliwada area at 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday. Sandip Bhujbal (38) and Sanjay Kshirsagar (27), who were sorting parcels, were injured when they tried to open the package, thinking it to be unusually heavy.The package contained a thick book and a short note. “The note was written by someone claiming to be a girl student from a Pune college who benefited from Mr. Nahar’s help, stating that [the parcel] was a gift to him,” said Vinoy Kumar Choubey, Inspector General of Police, Nashik Range.The explosive device was kept inside a cavity in the book, and had a circuit that would trigger the blast the moment the parcel was tampered with, said sources. Mr. Bhujbal has been discharged, but Mr. Kshirsagar, who has serious injuries on his chest and nearly lost the use of two fingers, is still in the ICU, said police sources.“The parcel was delivered to the courier office around 3 p.m. Based on the description given by the woman who received it, we have prepared a sketch of the person who delivered it,” Ranjan Kumar Sharma, Superintendent of Police, Ahmednagar, said. The police think the suspect gave a fake address. “We are trying to determine ifi t was addressed to Mr. Nahar because of his work or due to personal enmity,” Mr. Sharma said.Mr. Nahar, who has met investigating authorities, said the culprits may have intended to deter him from working with Kashmiri youth. “I cannot fathom who could have addressed the parcel to me and for what reason. We have received threats in the past, but they have not stopped us from carrying on our work.”

This Video of a 1900 Total Solar Eclipse Is the Oldest One Ever (and Made by a Magician!) How Yesterday’s Total Solar Eclipse Looked From a Plane (Photos, Video) Tomorrow (July 16), the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 to land astronauts on the moon and two weeks after the moon totally eclipsed the sun, it will be the moon’s turn to undergo an eclipse of its own. The full moon, in Sagittarius, will pass partway through the southern part of the Earth’s shadow resulting in a partial lunar eclipse. This event favors the Eastern Hemisphere, known colloquially as the “Old World”: Africa, Europe and western Asia. Most of South America will see the moon rise already within the Earth’s shadow. Conversely, for central and eastern Asia and Australia, the eclipse will still be in progress when the moon sets during the dawn hours of July 17. Unfortunately, North America will be completely shut out; the eclipse occurs during the daytime with the moon below the horizon.These Sharks Were Too Busy to Notice a Bigger Predator Watching ThemThe unexpected twist at the end of this feeding frenzy delighted scientists.Credit: NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research, Windows to the Deep 2019Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really Loud00:35关闭选项Automated Captions – en-US facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65941-lunar-eclipse-july-2019-explained.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0002:2802:28 Related: Amazing Photos of the Super Blood Wolf Moon of 2019!

The weak, pale-gray penumbral shading is detectable only within about 25 minutes of the partial eclipse’s beginning or end, depending on sky conditions and how carefully you look. A faint shading or smudge on the moon’s disk should become evident for most viewers around 19:35 UTC, and the last vestige of any faint tarnishing should disappear around 23:25 UTC. This will be the moon’s last interaction with Earth’s umbra for a while. During the next four lunar eclipses — all during the year 2020 — the moon will pass only through Earth’s penumbra. We’ll have to wait until the morning of May 26, 2021, when the central and western United States will be treated to a total lunar eclipse, although totality will be relatively short, lasting less than 18 minutes. Then, on the morning of Nov. 19, 2021, North Americans will be treated to an eclipse covering 98% of the moon’s diameter. Finally, on the night of May 15-16, 2022, an unusually long total lunar eclipse will be visible over most of the Americas. Totality will last almost 1.5 hours. Mark your calendars.
